Eleanor Sikorski (UK, London) Professional Workshop

This is a(n) workshop and closes on July 23, 2016

Eleanor will lead two sessions exploring how we can dance confidently, without needing to be sure of what we are doing, and how we can talk without hesitation, without needing to know what we are talking about.

The workshop will involve dancing and speaking. We will improvise with each other, in duets and larger groups, finding many sources of energy and enjoyment so that we can keep going and going... or at least believe that we can.

Hopefully we will be entertained by what we and others are doing. There will be touch, weight bearing, word association, listening, watching, music, food and more.

K5 workshop with Ellie Sikorski.

After studying dance, Eleanor Sikorski started making solo performances, using patterns and language to create recognisable sequences and images - inviting common understanding between her and her audience. Favouring clear communication over form, her work has taken many shapes: dance, cabaret, comedy, film and music - drawing increasingly on the narrative of her own life and the wider social commentary which is brought to light.

Her solo work has been commissioned by Dance Umbrella (Big hands, big heart, 2014) and by BELLYFLOP Magazine (Cake, 2013, for Sadler's Wells Wild Card). She also works collaboratively with Flora Wellesley Wesley as 'Nora' - together commissioning artists Jonathan Burrows & Matteo Fargion, Liz Aggiss and Simon Tanguy to make duets for them to perform. She has worked as a dancer for Eva Recacha, Seke Chimutengwende, Igor and Moreno, Evangelia Kolyra, and Alexandre Achour (Berlin), Gillie Kleiman and Sara Lindström.

Inky Cloak (UK) Seeks Choreographer

This is a(n) job and closes on July 25, 2016

We are looking for a male contemporary choreographer to work on our new show We Raise Our Hands In The Sanctuary, at The Albany next year. Performance run 31 January to 11 February 2017. Rehearsals in London 9 to 30 January 2017. The show is co-produced by Inky Cloak and The Albany and supported by Arts Council England.

We Raise Our Hands In The Sanctuary combines drama, dance and nightclubbing to tell the story of two gay teenagers who free themselves from the racism, homophobia and hardship of early 1980s London to create an underground club night that is the secular sanctuary of the title - only to have their achievement threatened by ambition, addiction and AIDS. With gentrification closing LGBT clubs and pubs at an alarming rate, the piece spotlights the enduring significance of queer space: we all need a place to be what we want to be.

We are looking for a contemporary choreographer with knowledge of and passion for the club and street styles of the 1980s to work with a diverse company of male actors and dancers.

We are particularly interested in hearing from BAME applicants because of the diversity of the cast and the characters of the story. There are two dancers' roles: we are open to exploring the possibility of the choreographer taking one of the roles.

Choreography fee: £1800. Additional rehearsal and performances fees (if applicable) £440 per week. To express your interest in this opportunity, please send your CV, headshot and a link to your online showreels (choreography / dance) (YouTube/Vimeo/etc) to by 5pm Monday 25 July 2016.

Other projects include working with Antony Gormley & Hofesh Shechter on the project 'survivor' (Barbican, 2012) and critically acclaimed opera Orpheus Et Eurydice (Royal Opera House, 2015) amongst others. He has also appeared in numerous music videos and film shorts. In 2015 Sam established his own company 'Dim Timbre' to create work separate from his performance career and has upcoming commissions in Canada and Spain.

For more information;

The workshop will draw from Sam's career as a performer, and the choreographic belief that work is driven by the strength of the performer. We will use improvisation and theatrical tasks to explore different textures, emotions and characters in the body, while remaining present in the 'scene' or 'world' we create, as Sam continues to build a methodology which combines dance and theatre training.

We will create scenes, solos and sequences of emotional poignancy while treading the line between realism and abstraction, lastly discuss what being a believable, honest and strong performer feels like and looks like. Sam will also use the intimacy of the k5 workshop to begin exploring choreographic ideas for upcoming creations/commissions as "Dim Timbre"

25th and/or 26th June
12pm - 6pm

Workshop will take place at Unit K5 Arena Design Centre, 71 Ashfield Road. London. N4 1FF.

1 Day £40
2 Days £70
